The City of Creedmoor's management recognizes the importance of retaining quality employees. One way we show appreciation and recognition to our employees is by presenting Service Year Award Certificates and Commendation Certificates. Service Year Award Certificates and service year pins are presented in five-year intervals. Employees are presented with their certificate in open session by the Mayor.
Officers Coleman, Guida Commended
At the March 5 Board of Commissioners meeting, Creedmoor patrol officers Ben Coleman and Lauren Guida were presented commendations for professional achievement in the performance of their duties during the snowstorm on December 9, 2018. They were commended for not only working extra hours when deteriorating road conditions prevented them from going home after their shifts, but also for the part they played in the detection and arrest of two suspects on drug and weapons offenses at a local business while responding to an alarm call with regular shift officers.
Officer Guida Receives Creedmoor PD's Silver Bullet Award
At the 2018 National Night Out event, Chief Keith King presented the department's Silver Bullet Award to Officer Lauren Guida. Guida was nominated for the award by her fellow officers and CPD telecommunicators. Created in 2013, the award is presented annually to recognize a Creedmoor sworn law enforcement officer for his/her exemplary fortitude in serving beyond the already demanding requirements of the position. The award recipient receives a framable certificate, a silver bullet key chain, and a $100 gift card.
Officer Warren Recognized for Life Saving Efforts
Officer Chassity Warren was recognized for her recent lifesaving efforts of a Creedmoor citizen by Mayor Bobby Wheeler and Chief of Police Keith King at the June 5, 2018 Creedmoor Board of Commissioners Meeting.
Officer Warren’s commendation read as follows:
“Officer Warren without hesitation or delay; acted instinctively, using her first responder training to save the life of a Creedmoor citizen. Officer Warren demonstrated she is here to serve, in whatever capacity, to ensure the ultimate well-being of our citizens and visitors. It is believed that Officer Warren’s immediate response and appropriate administration of CPR, coupled with the follow up care of GEMS and GMC, led to the citizen’s survival. Officer Warren’s outstanding performance in the line of duty is keeping with the highest traditions of law enforcement and reflects greatly upon her and this department.”

2018 Annual Employee Appreciation Day
For the 2018 Employee Appreciation Event, city employees participated in an “Escape Room Challenge” where they performed team building exercises under pressure.
